Saturday morning was clean up and regroup mentally after saying goodbye to family. I decided to spin some of this month's FiberBinderClub hemp fiber.
While it is a bit coarse compared to wool, it spun very nicely and I would love to make a woven mat from this for the table.
I remembered I had another ounce of this fiber somewhere and sure enough, found and spun that , too. I am leaving this as singles and going to boil it to set the twist and see how it knits up. I might have to ply this, too, but it is good to have ideas to try out!
In the afternoon, we had our next visitors from NY. We took a drive up to Corky Bells for our dinner and our traditional picture on the dock! They are official visitors now that they have this picture as record! (The picture is wonky because of the sloped rails where I rest my camera for this timed snap shot!) It is so nice to have old friends make the time to drop in for a few days.
